I first became aware of this site whilst playing some of the games on Tombola. Lastminute.com is the sponsor of one of the games called “Zap”.
I was really very impressed with the site and would like to elaborate more on the services that they offer.
1) Holidays – As the name implies this section covers various holiday packages available. They have a very useful and detailed search feature on this page. You need to enter; Date you intend to depart, Select maximum date variation, Where you want to leave from, Your destination, Duration of stay required, Type of accommodation required, and amount you are willing to spend. This search feature can give you a precise list of holidays available to you since the questions are very detailed. If you want a more universal listing you simply select the lowest level settings, in this case “I Don’t Mind, Show All and Any”.
Prices are competitive and they certainly do provide some unique offers.
3) Top Destinations
As the name implicate this provides you with a list of top destinations alongwith all relevant information such as, prices, full tour details, flights etc.
One of the more interesting sections this. First you will need to register with them. This process just requires you to provide basic details and you will then be assigned with a password.
You then need to access the relevant page and you can then bid for your desired holiday, hotel etc. You select what you require, specify a quantity and confirm your bid amount. Keep on checking the site to see if your bid has been accepted or if you’ve been outbid. If you have indeed been outbid you can increase your bid.
I am sure that many a bargain can be obtained here. Bids start from as low as £1.00.
7) Staying In
Again here you can access very useful information if you intend to stay at home. These include; TV Listings, Eat-In guide (restaurants that do home delivery services), DVD Rental companies located close to you, etc etc.
One of the listings that caught my eye here was the Adult Fun section. Here you can purchase adult oriented and unique material such as “Intimate – The Love Game”, “Orgasm Slippers”, “Foreplay Dice” and the likes. Some really kinky and funny stuff here and something which I have never seen on any other similar website previously.
This section provides you with many a different variety of gifts. The items offered are indeed different from those offered on other sites. Areas covered are; Drinks, Gadgets & Electronics, Inspiration, DVD & CD’s, Emergency gifts, Gourmet gifts, Gift experiences and Flowers & Balloons.
One thing that caught my eye on this page was the listing of “Yesterday’s Top Selling Gift” – A CANISTER OF OXYGEN. The reason for this being the top selling gift is obviously associated with the recent events in America.
Overall I find this site very much different from the others operating in the same field.
They have strived to make it more fun and providing additional sections and information. All items can be purchased online and they accept the maximum variety of Credit Cards (including American Express which many companies do not accept due to the high charges to them).
I think they have done a great job and I highly recommend this site to all members and visitors.
